The First National Bank of GameStop
An anonymous user of 4chan has come up with a brilliantly harebrained scheme for their personal banking. They use video game retailer GameStop as a bank.
Here’s how it works: whenever a paycheck comes in, this person goes to GameStop and pre-orders a bunch of upcoming video games….
That’s… pretty brilliant. It also highlights how terribly the banking industry is failing an extremely common kind of customer. Honestly, it’s stories like this that make me think maybe using Post Offices as simple banks isn’t such a crazy idea after all.
